Why is the change in enthalpy equal to heat absorbed or released? How does that work?

enthalpy is defined as the heat in the system so when we are talking about deltaH that is the change in enthalpy between a product and reactant. We can say that heat released is negative because we measure deltaH by products - reactants and if it is exothermic the heat of the product is less than reactant making the final answer negative.

Enthalpy is the study of heat absorbed or released in a chemical reaction. So when you calculate the change of heat in a system, you are calculating the enthalpy of the system. It can be represented by deltaH.

Yes, the delta H is equivalent to the enthalpy. You get the exact number using hess's law.

Delta H is the change in enthalpy.
